The children have inherited the Earth. And their nightmare is just beginning.
Facing starvation and pursued by a relentless sniper bent on killing her, Josie Revelle - and undersized misfit with nowhere to run - embarks on a mad 48-hour journey that takes her places darker than she ever imagined. She finds friendship in Shawnika Williams, a street-smart, hard-punching girl on a desperate quest to find her missing brother, and Grace Cavanaugh, a naive West Virginia farm girl looking for redemption . . . and Josie's about to become an unwilling messiah.
At the end of their path awaits charismatic, megalomaniacal teenage psychopath Zane Barzan, who commands an army of adolescent killers and has been busy building his own blood-soaked empire modeled after Hitler's Third Reich.
Misfit. Brawler. Tomboy. Psychopath. Are they the end of humanity, or a new beginning?
